Town Lectures and Concerts 2018
This nineteenth annual series of popular lectures presents Ipswich, its history and cultural background through the eyes of Suffolk-based speakers.
Once again, the series incorporates performances from local musicians presenting different styles of music through the ages.
All the events take place at lunchtime on Thursdays at Museum Street Methodist Church (entrance in Black Horse Lane), Ipswich.
Each event starts at 1.00pm and ends at 1.50pm.
Tea and coffee are served from 12.30pm.
Seats are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
We apologise in advance if, on your arrival, the hall is full.
Due to fire regulations we must comply with maximum capacity rules.
The choice of venue and timing aim to give business people, shoppers and visitors to the town the opportunity to attend.
ADMISSION IS FREE with a retiring collection to defray expenses.
Donations of at least £2.00 per head are valued to maintain the series.
The Town Lectures and Concerts series is an IAA initiative, co-ordinated by Vera Rogers and Joy Bounds.
